CAR is a joint conference between Bobit Business Media, the National Auto Auction Association, and the International Automotive Remarketers Alliance.
The top news of 2018 included coverage on the hurricane's impact on the remarketing industry, the effects of the off-lease tidal wave, mobile technology and Manheim.
Manheim has named Fredrick Standfield as senior vice president of its assurance and reconditioning group, according to a company announcement.
Bobit Business Media has been acquired by Gemspring Capital, a middle-market private equity firm. Bobit, which bought HDT in 2012, was founded by Ed Bobit in 1961 with Automotive Fleet and today is a successful business-to-business media company in the fleet, transportation, beauty, and law enforcement industries.
Due to the areas affected being less densely populated than cities affected by recent hurricanes such as Florence, Irma, and Harvey, the impact on the auto industry will be less severe than those hurricanes.
